Good winter gloves are hard to find, but Specialized have nearly hit the nail on the head with the Deflect.
Unlike most winter gloves, the palm doesn’t have any unnecessary padding – just the right amount – with an ulnar nerve pad at the heel.
It’s lined with fleece and the outer is windproof, which keeps the worst of the rain out and keeps your pinkies at operating temperature.
Reflective patches warn cars you’re about to turn, and there’s a nice big thumb wipe too. The fit is somewhat vast compared to a lot of padded winter gloves, so you’ll have to size down when buying these.
